MSHS track and field with solid results in league action against Bothell and Issy

We now have some Mount Si track and field for you.

The Wildcats took on Bothell and Issaquah yesterday in a Kingco 4A tri-meet at Bothell High School. Team scores were not reported, but based on how a number of Mount Si athletes did, the Wildcats as a team were very competitive on both the boys’ and girls’ fronts.

A pair of wins by Jesiah Irish in sprint events headlined the Mount Si boys’ performance. Irish clocked 11.22 seconds to win the 100m, and came across the finish line in just under 23 seconds to take the 200m. Also winning events on the boys’ side for the Wildcats were Logan Milks in the javelin, with a toss of 163 feet; Lee Kamp, who cleared 5’10” to take the high jump, and Joe Waskom, who ran 1:57.82 to win the 800m race.

The ladies were headlined by throwers, as they swept all those events. Two were taken by Abby Triou. She won the shot put with a throw of 33’ 3 ¼” and took the discus with a toss of 103’2”. Jenae Usselman rounded out the domination for the Wildcat girls in the throws, with a win in the javelin, as she tossed it 110’9” to earn the crown. Other event winners for Mount Si’s ladies included Karlie Stewart, who cleared five feet flat to take the high jump; Tatum Dalgleish, who cleared 15’ 7 ½” to win the long jump, and Chloe Cosgrove, who clocked 2:29.09 to win the 800m.

In other events, Waskom finished second in the boys’ 1600m (4:20.96), Milks was the runner up in the boys’ discus (130’5”), Dalgleish took second in the girls’ triple jump (31’ 11 ¾”) and Mount Si’s 4×200 girls’ relay team of Lizzie Belceto, Sophia Hulet, Kiana Goodwin and Maybel From finished second in their race (1:54.62).

The Wildcats will be busy next week. They host Newport in league action next Thursday, then split up for a pair of weekend meets next weekend. Outside of Waskom, Mount Si will be at the Arnie Young Invitational in Renton, while their junior boys’ distance star will be headed down to southern California to compete against a strong field of athletes from all over the western United States at the Arcadia Invitational in suburban Los Angeles. He is expected to compete in distance races there as the lone Wildcat representative.
